Ron Burgundy Confirms 'Anchorman 2' Is in the Works
While stopping by 'CONAN' show, Will Ferrell's mustached character in the iconic comedy film announces the follow-up movie project as claiming, 'It is official! There will be a sequel to 'Anchorman'.'


It is confirmed that a sequel to 2004's "Anchorman" is currently in the works. Announcing the good news is none other than the anchor of fictional San Diego's Action 4 News, Ron Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, as he stopped by TBS' "CONAN" on Wednesday night, March 28.

Sporting his signature mustache while being clad in a wine-colored suit, the character declared, "As of 0900 Mountain Time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to 'Anchorman'." He added, "It is official! There will be a sequel to 'Anchorman'. There will be a sequel."

Deadline has quickly learned that Ferrell along with Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner are all set to reprise their roles as Burgundy, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana and Champion Kind respectively in "Anchorman 2". Adam McKay will also return as the director in addition to producing the sequel along with Ferrell and Judd Apatow.

As for the plot of the sequel, an insider said that McKay and Ferrell are still "kicking around ideas." The source added, "We didn't expect a week ago that this thing was going to get greenlit. It's been alive and dead so many times."

The original "Anchorman" was developed at DreamWorks, but Paramount took over the franchise after DreamWorks 2.0 departed the studio. The story revolves around Burgundy, who is a top-rated anchorman in San Diego in the '70s. The film grossed $90.5 million worldwide against the budget of a mere $26 million.
